Fun Finds on Friday

Take a little bit of fun.
Throw in a bit of Friday.
And get a thing that I like to call Fun Finds on Friday.
You know the deal. Let's do this.

Fun Find #1
L.O.V.E. this page that Paige Evans shared over on the American Crafts blog. 


That's not paper straws around the photo. Nope. It's rolled patterned paper tubes. Great idea, Paige!

Fun Find #2
Speaking of fun stuff, check out this card Danielle Walls posted on the Neat and Tangled blog.


How cool are those triangles?! Super cool, if you ask me.  By the way, be sure to check out Danielle's post. She's got a video showing you how she put her card together.

Fun Find #3
Run (... don't walk...) to Kimberly Crawford's blog and check out this post. She's put together the most awesome Christmas-themed wall hanging. I'll give you a hint: A wood pallet base and die-cutting. 


It's awesome. Go. Fast. Just be sure to come back. I'd miss you. Like a lot.

Fun Find #4
Want to see a regular old snowglobe transformed into something totally cute with stamps and markers? Stop by the Lawn Fawn blog and check out this sweet little snowglobe Nicole Gavaldon made.


She's even put together a video to show you how she did it. Nice job, Nicole!

Fun Find #5
Looking for a creative shot in the arm? Check out this post on the Studio Calico blog. You'll find three great sketches to use for your scrapbooking and paper crafting projects.

So there you have it!
Let's do it again next week!

Documenting December

Planning to document your December?
Like every year around this time, there's a lot of online buzz right now with folks getting ready to scrapbook their daily activities in December.
So here are some products that I think sure would be fun to use in a December album.


I love the rustic feel of the Cozy Christmas collection from Simple Stories. It's packed with traditional Christmas icons (snowflakes, poinsettias, trees, snowman and more), plus it features some trendy patterns as well. You'll find chevrons, stripes, woodgrain, bokeh and polka dots. 


The Christmas Cheer collection from Echo Park Paper in a few words? Absolutely delicious. 


The Celebrating Christmas stamp set from Technique Tuesday covers a lot of ground for activities in December. I imagine using a lot of these stamps to record the month's activities.


Christmas Fill-ins is another stamp set from Technique Tuesday that I think covers a lot of different things that folks do in December. Imagine your kids and grandkids looking at your scrapbooks in 50 years and seeing what your favorite December movie, book and song was. I don't know. It kinda makes my eyes misty thinking about it.


Embellishment fan? You do not  want to miss on out on the Very Merry Embellishment kit from Freckled Fawn. Talk about fun! Washi tape, chipboard, foil stickers, metal stickers and more! Not to mention, the kit includes a totally cute zipper pouch!


Talk about a mixture of fun! These Bits and Pieces from Elle's Studio are just so fun! I especially love that "Holiday Magic 2014" snapshot! And how fun is that speech bubble?! L.O.V.E. it!


Are you one who likes kits? I sure dig the A December to Remember kit that Kelly Purkey put together. It even includes a cool December-themed stamp set Kelly designed herself. 

Thinking about December,
Teri

PS. Looking for some ideas to document December?


Be sure to check out the December issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine. There's a feature that shows off some clever countdown calendars and projects that document December's festivities.

Trend Talk: Plus Signs

Yep. It's Trend Talk time, friends. 
I think this trend is a positive one.
We're talking plus signs.
This symbol is making the rounds.

It is showing up on pillows.


It's showing up on mousepads.


It's even getting turned into garlands.


Mmm. My trend loving heart.

And it is showing up in the paper crafting world.

You'll find plus signs on paper.


You'll find them as enamel shapes.





And you'll even find steel dies with plus signs.



Cool, huh?!
And how fun is this card Jocelyn Olson shared over on the Paper Smooches blog?


Positively fun, if you ask me! (Wink!)

Spending time with all of you is a plus,
Teri
